Power Specifications - Subwoofer Channel

RMS Power @ 4 ohms
The RMS power rating is the measure of continuous power that an amplifier can output, or a speaker can handle. It is the most accurate depiction of real, continuous power that the industry has so far. If the final impedance of your speaker(s) or subwoofer(s) equals 4 ohms, this is how much power this amplifier will supply at that ohm level. The higher the RMS wattage, the more clean and loud your music will sound. The 5th channel on these particular amplifiers are usually dedicated for driving subwoofers.
450 watts x 1 channels
RMS Power @ 2 ohms
The RMS power rating is the measure of continuous power that an amplifier can output, or a speaker can handle. It is the most accurate depiction of real, continuous power that the industry has so far. If the final impedance of your speaker(s) or subwoofer(s) equals 2 ohms, this is how much power this amplifier will supply at that ohm level. The higher the RMS wattage, the more clean and loud your music will sound. The 5th channel on these particular amplifiers are usually dedicated for driving subwoofers.
700 watts x 1 channels
RMS Power @ 1 ohm
The RMS power rating is the measure of continuous power that an amplifier can output, or a speaker can handle. It is the most accurate depiction of real, continuous power that the industry has so far. If the final impedance of your speaker(s) or subwoofer(s) equals 1 ohms, this is how much power this amplifier will supply at that ohm level. The higher the RMS wattage, the more clean and loud your music will sound. The 5th channel on these particular amplifiers are usually dedicated for driving subwoofers.
1400 watts x 1 channels
Peak Power Output
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage. Often times this maximum is achieved during a brief musical burst, such as a drum accent or low bass hit. Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal to consumers. The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison. This is the peak power output for the amplifier's 5th channel.
2800 watts x 1 channels

Amplifier Specifications

Amplifier Class

An amplifier increases the power of the signal being fed to it by taking energy from its power supply and matching the signal but increasing its amplitude. Amplifiers use many different methods for converting these electrical signals and have been categorized into classes.

Class A/B: Greater than 50% of the input signal is amplified while the other percentage is “off”. These amplifiers have a small amount of current flowing through the output transistors all the time which almost eliminates crossover distortion. Class A/B has great sound quality but is not as efficient as class D. These amps are most commonly used to drive speakers.

Class D: Also known as switching amplifiers, class D amps have output transistors that are completely turned “on” or “off”. This means that when the transistors are on, there is almost no voltage across them but when they are off there is significant voltage but no current flowing through it which makes these amplifiers very efficient at the cost of sound quality. These amps are most commonly used to drive subwoofers.

Other Classes: You may see classes such as GH, bD, X, FD, etc. by some manufactures. These amplifiers tend to be either class A/B, D or a hybrid of the two but with improvements to their designs that can make them more efficient or offer better sound quality.

D
Number of Channels
Each channel on an amplifier will power one speaker using a positive and negative cable. There are various types of amplifiers, each designed to power a certain number of speakers. Monoblock amplifiers, also known as single channel, are designed to power one or more subwoofers. These amplifiers often have very high power ratings. On the other hand, multi-channel amplifiers power multiple speakers, usually at lower power ratings. 2-Channel and 4-Channel amplifiers can power car speakers or low powered subwoofers. Occasionally you might see a 5 or 6-channel amplifier that can power speakers and subwoofers at the same time. The most common setup is a monoblock amp to run subwoofers and a 4-channel amp to run door speakers. Check out our Knowledge Base for more information.
1 - Mono
Total Peak Power Output
The total peak power output is measured as the wattage per channel multiplied by the number of channels, and is calculated at the lowest level of operating impedance.

It is measured during a brief musical burst, such as a sudden drum accent. Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal.

The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison.

2800 watts
Total RMS Power Output
Total RMS power is measured by multiplying RMS power per channel by the number of channels, and is calculated at the lowest level of operating impedance.

RMS power is the amount of continuous power, measured in watts, that an amplifier produces is called RMS power. The higher the RMS figure, the louder and cleaner your music sounds.

The RMS output figure is much more accurate than the peak rating when comparing products.

1400 watts
Maximum Input Gauge Size
This is the largest gauge wire that will fit into the power and ground terminals of this device. The lower the gauge number, the thicker the wire is. For example, a 4 gauge wire is thicker than an 8 gauge wire and thus has higher current carrying capacity. Always do your best to get this size wire to reduce the risk of damage to your components.
2 AWG
Minimum Impedance Unbridged
The lowest impedance the amplifier will handle when it is not bridged.
1 ohms
Minimum Impedance Bridged
The lowest impedance the amplifier will handle when it is bridged.
Not Bridgeable
THD at Rated RMS Power
The amount of change in harmonic content of the signal as it is amplified. A lower figure indicates less change and a more accurate amp. THD below 0.10% is inaudible.
<0.03%
Speaker Level Inputs
Speaker level inputs are commonly referred to as high-level inputs and vice versa. This input type allows you to get your audio signal directly from the speaker wire in your vehicle, instead of using RCA cables. The advantage of this is factory integration, as most stock radios do not have RCA outputs to run amplifiers.
No
Preamp Outputs
Many amplifiers are equipped with RCA preamp outputs which pass the original music signal from the source to additional amplifiers. This is known as daisy chaining because the source connects to the first amp, and the first amp connects to the second amp, etc. The advantage to daisy chaining is you only need one 2-channel RCA cable to transfer the signal from the head-unit to the amplifier, and then one additional cable for each amp being daisy chained.
No
Built-in Crossover

A crossover is a type of filtering system that permits only certain frequencies to play. A Low-Pass (LP) crossover allows only frequencies below its setting to get through which is good in the case of some subwoofers. A High-Pass(HP) filter allows frequencies above its setting to pass through, this is normally used on speakers.

When a crossover is set to FULL it means no filtering is added and the full frequency spectrum is allowed through the amplifier. Filtering is important because feeding a speaker frequencies it cannot reproduce effectively creates distortion.

Low-pass (LP)
Low-Pass Crossover Frequency
The low-pass crossover frequency is typically used for subwoofers. It can be a fixed crossover point or a variable crossover range. A variable low-pass crossover allows you to select a specific crossover point which allows frequencies below the set crossover point to pass, while making frequencies above the set point gently or harshly roll-off, depending on the steepness of the slope.

The steepness of the roll-off slope is measured in dB/octave and refers to the rate of attenuation (lowering of volume) outside their pass bands.

40 - 220 Hz
Subsonic Filter
Allows you to block (filter) ultra-low frequencies that your subs cannot reproduce.
10 - 50 Hz
Signal-to-Noise Ratio
This spec compares the strength of the signal to the level of background noise. A higher value indicates less background noise.
>80 dB
Bass Boost
The objective of the bass boost is to get more kick out of your subwoofer. It is a circuit that emphasizes the lower frequencies at a given point. The bass boost should always be set first before setting the gain. This feature is known for destroying subwoofers and is commonly used incorrectly, so be cautious.
0dB, 6dB, 12dB
Bass/Gain Remote
If the amp comes with a bass/gain remote you will be able to control the level of your bass from your dashboard. Typically bass remotes also include a 16-20 ft. wire for installation.
Optional (Accessory required and sold separately)
Fan Cooled
A great feature to have if an amp generates a large amount of heat. Cooling fans can help regulate the temperature to prevent the amp from overheating (burning).
No
Fuse Rating
The amperage and the number of fuse(s) an amp requires.
Not specified by manufacturer
CEA-2006 Compliant
Amplifiers that have been tested to meet specific standards. When a car amplifier meets these standards, you can be sure that it will be able to produce the amount of power specified by the official CEA-2006 rating. Usually, these rating consist of the following items:
  • RMS Power
  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio

This rating applies to both external car amplifiers, as well as the amplifiers inside of in-dash stereos.

Awesome Product!

January 26, 2014

Produces ALOT of power in a very clean unit. I have never seen an amp this small that produces this much power. I paired it with 1 massive Toro 12" (Model 122) and it pounds! You will not be disappointed at all. Very good price on Sonic, Even beat boxing day sales

Tiny amp, big power/

November 25, 2013

I was replacing a Precision Power Black Ice 1300.1D sub amp. I chose this model to match my sub but mainly for the size. I drive a Ford Ranger. I was able to tuck this amp in the rear pillar mounted to an MDF board. With all the interior trim installed there is no indication there is an amp. There is another Massive 2 channel amp in the opposite pillar for the front stage. This amp makes all the power the PPI amp did and more. The gain is all the way down and I had to back the volume off at the EQ. The sub sounds clean as a whistle and this amp is a great buy. My rating will include a 3 star for durability since I've only owned the unit a month.

Very Nice Amp

November 24, 2013

like this, It's a small powerful mono block amp. It came in a really nice and strong box that gives a really good first impression The amp itself has nice looks and feel, being made of brushed anodized aluminum. The quality seems very good, both on the outside, and the pcb components, the power speaker terminals are also of high quality, having the same size hex on all the terminals is a nice touch. The only things I can put my finger on is the lack of a remote gain/bass knob. It has to be purchased separately. therefore it only gets a 4 stars rating from me. Also the bass boost only has three settings 0db 6 db and 12 db, it should have been a pot meter. But who uses bass boost anyway.

Power amp

November 21, 2012

I have owned Rockford, Kenwood, Alpine and Pioneer class D amplifiers and this 1 beats the all by far. It never heats up , very easy setup as well all the screws are the same size in a cannot be removed so you can shove wire into the terminals. It has a circuit protector so if you overwork it turns off but does not break. I am powering two 12 inch subwoofers at about 50 percent power off this thing. And it performs amazingly. Had it for about a month have no problems and would be easily by this again or recommend it to anybody looking for a mono block amp for their subs.

Awesome amp

December 7, 2011

I ran this amp on two Phoenix Gold Titanium 15's and I'm currently running the Massive Audio N4 on two Skar Audio VVX 15's and I've been very impressed with Massive's mono amps. They seem to do rated power and I haven't had any heat issues. They're pretty efficient but the best thing about them is the size. I'd recommend these amps at the make an offer price, retail is a little high on them. If you have space limitations and want good efficient power, don't hesitate in picking these up.

Don't let its size fool you!

November 24, 2011

I bought this amp to power my 2 Alpine Type R 12's at a 2 ohm load after my Kicker 1200.1 died on me. I knew the amp was small but I was flabbergasted when I got the box. This thing is tiny! Hook it up and you will be blown away though: it blew my Kicker out of the water! I will be putting in a DD 2515d2 soon and dropping this baby down to 1 ohm, and am planning on buying its 4-channel sister to go along with it. I bough the amp open box from Sonic and received great service as always.

n3 and pioneer premier

September 7, 2011

I have this amp running my two 12" pioneer premiers at 1 ohm. I just changed from a hifonics brutus 1600 class d monoblock and let me tell you the difference. I underestimated the n3 because of the size but evrything about it is better than the brutus. I have no complaints on this amp and love that it truely is 1 ohm stable and isn't a bad price either. I highly suggest this amp for anybody trying to do a little upgrade.

Massive Audio N3 -- Excellent Amp

March 14, 2011

I have 2 Massive Audio amps in my system, the NX4 & N3. The NX4 is running my Massive Audio CK6 Stage III comps and the N3 is wired to my Addictive Audio Excruci8 (8" sub). I'm feeding this sub 450 watts and it absolutely pounds. The amp never even gets warm. And the connections are perfect, the finish is beautiful and you can mount the amp anywhere you wish due to the size. If you are wanting some great sound quality (and true power) for a fraction of the price compared to JL Audio, look no further. Take a peek at what Massive Audio has to offer, you will be blown away. They are also CEA 2006 compliant. If you wanted to run the amp down to 1 ohm, you will have 1400 watts on tap to slam anything you hook up to it. Great products!!!!! Massive Audio all the way!!
